The Ocala Banner was founded in 1883 as a successor to the Ocala Banner-Iacon, itself the product of a merger between the East Florida Banner and the Florida Iacon. In 1890, the Ocala Banner became a daily. Over the years it bore alternate titles: the Banner, the Daily Banner, and the Ocala Daily Banner. Situated in rural Marion County, the Ocala Banner covered farming, business, and civic issues in Ocala, where the Freeze of 1895 had devastated the citrus industry and paved the way for diversified agriculture and the growth of tourism. The most important of the early editors of the Ocala Banner was Frank E. Harris, a veteran of the Confederate army, who ran the paper in the 1890s. Other editors included T.W. Harris, who had published several other newspapers in Ocala, and C.L. Bittinger, who before moving to Florida had served as a commander in the Grand Army of the Republic. In 1895, the Ocala Evening Star surfaced as a rival to the Ocala Banner. Beginning in 1897, it also appeared in a weekly edition, the Ocala Weekly Star. During an address to the Ocala Rotary Club, R.N. Dosh, editor of the Evening Star in the 1920s and 1930s, recalled that the “Star first saw the light of day in the press room of the Florida Baptist Witness”, founded in 1884 as the weekly press organ of the Florida Baptist Convention, a branch of the Southern Baptist Convention. Former competitors, the Ocala Evening Star and the Ocala Banner joined in 1943 to form the Ocala Star-Banner, which remains the daily newspaper of Marion County.

Mr.. S. Mayo. of the firm of Ron
a;dl Mayo. Reddick, was a prominent
visitor Saturday. The firm is plant-
ing about ::o;t acres in cantaloupes
and watermelons. Mr. Mayo said that
the cold of Friday did no damage
whatsoever, and that the truckers are,
)rophesying a good year this season
and good prices. He says that the
acreage will not be so large as in
former years. This paper hopes that
the most sanguine anticipations of
th g-rowers will be realized..

it is said that the Clyde Steamship
(',ipany intends to establish a boat
line from Baltimore to Jacksonville
in competition with the Merchant
and Miners' line between the two cit-
tes. This steamship competition in
freight rates, however, only puts the
interior at a disadvantage, because our
railway commission does not irmit
freight competition between railways,
if we are correctly informed. The
cheaper our seaport cities obtain
freights the harder it is for interior

The Metropole, under the mange-

fas reputation. The register shows
a nice list of arrivals, and many states
are represented.

Dr. W. D. Crum, collector of cus-

tendered his resignation. Crum is a

If Maricn county does not have a
big corn yield this season it will be
no fault of Dr. Boozer. He is doing
all in his power to stimulate it. It
will come, too. If Washington coun-
ty can increase her yield 100 per cent.
surely Marion can do likewise.

Mr. J. B. Malloy. the vegetable
grower, was in the city Tuesday. He
was too modest to tell us the number
of acres he is planting this year, but
his neighbors say that he is not les-
sening his crop at all, and when the
crops are marketed that he will not
be very much behind the biggest

61 North Sanchez street, and will im-
mediately occupy the same. Mrs.
Hendricks, her son, E. V. Hendricks,
and her mother have gone to Mont-

much to lose them.

Mr. C. Y. Miller of Leroy passed
through Ocala yesterday on his way
to New York, where he goes to buy

goods and consummate a
tate deal. We were- sorry

the pleasure of supping with him at

Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Wilson of Dan-

leave Ocala they will go to Tampa,
and from Tampa will visit Cuba, re-
turning home via Key West and
Knight's Key. Mr. Wilson is a hat

old proverb is illustrated by the fact
that as soon as one picture show is

Mrs. Geo. R. McKean entertained
informally a small but congenial par-

compliment to her sister, Mrs. C. V.

tempting refreshments were served
by Mrs. McKean. Those enjoying
Mrs. McKean's charming hospitality
were the following ladies: Mrs. Hol-

Green was the happy hostess of the
Married Ladies 'Card Club.
Mrs. Green greeted her guests on
the front porch, and in a cozy corner
on the porch her sister, Mrs. S. P. Ea-
gleton, served most delicious punch.
Six tables had been placed in the
billiard room and on the porch, which
had been very tastily screened in with
evergreens and the beautiful dogwood
and for several hours many interest-
ing and exciting games of whist were
enjoyed by the guests.
The scores were kept on beautiful
little heart-shaped cards, which were
little March calendars, made by the
clever hostess.
Mrs. Green, assisted by her sister,
served delicious cream, cake, salted
almonds and coffee.
Mrs. R. L. Anderson won the high-
est number of points and was given
an exquisite hand-painted flower box.

Blitchton. We know that he would
be delighted. It is a good country and
big game is there in abundance, and
there is nothing like race suicide

of its prominent citizens gave birth
to twins-two bouncing boys, and
eighteen months ago the same good
woman gave birth to two sweet girl
cherubs. Dr. Blftch says that the
whole community is in ecstacy, and
contend that Blitchton is the finest
spot, to be found anywhere.

On Wednesday afternoon about 5:30

o'clock, Mr. McKenzie was fixing some
electrical work on a chandalier in the
Court Pharmacy, and while thus en-
gaged happened to a very serious ac-
cident. He was standing on the top
of a step ladder and naa one hand on
the steam pipe, and with the other
hand he touched a live wire, He
could neither turn loose nor speak,
and it was some time before anyone
Knew what the trouble was. He had
hicked the ladder from under him and
was hanging to the pipe and the chan-
dalier. When the electricity was
turned off he fell through one of the
beautiful plate glass show cases,
breaking the top of the case and the
two glass shelves into thousands of
Fortunately Mr. McKenzie was not
seriously injured. He received, how-
ever, a very ugly gash back of his
right ear and was somewhat used up
from his fall and shock.
Messrs. Beck and Robinson, who
only a few days ago took charge of
*the drug store had just finished rear-
ranging this show case, having on
display a fine line of combs and
brushes. Many of the articles in the
show case were broken. The loss of
the plate glas and shelves amounts
to about fifty or sixty dollars.
The accident happened at about the
busiest hour of the day, and in less
'than a minute there were over an
hundred people in the store.

At the meeting of the board of trade
Wednesday it was shown how impera-
tive lower freight rates are. When
we obtain a freight rate that will put
us on an equality with' other places
then we are perfectly willing to "root
hog or die." No city should ask more
than a fair footing in the race for
commercial supremacy; no city should
have less. That is what our courts
and railway commissioners should in-
sist upon.

Mr. Lawrence Jones of Weirsdale
was in Ocala Wednesday. He is in
his 85th year and is as straight as an
arrow and noticeably active. Before
going to Lake Weir he lived in New-

classmate of his oldest son, who is
now a prominent minister of New
Castle and is building a seventy-five
thousand dollar church.

who died the night before.

That's the Way to Pronounce Hyomei, -
the Money-Back Catarrh Cure LCs 'A'H
As doubt exists in the minds of
many readers of the Banner, let us --,ef
say that the above is the proper pro-
nunciation of America's most wonder-
ful catarrh cure.
The Postoffice Drug Store is the LT NT
agent for Hyomei in Ocala and they *
will sell you an inhaler, a bottle of Dr
Hyomei, and full instructions for use
for only $1.
And if it fails to cure acute or 'va full
chronic catarrh, asthma, bronchitis, .'urIl uriva
croup, hay fever, or coughs and colds, .
they will give you your money back. Ml
The person who suffers from catarrh
after such an offer as that, must like
to sniffle, spit and wheeze, and he
generally is disgusting.

citizen of Allegan, Mich., says of Hy- 5,

for a long time. I can say that Hyo-

I know Hyomei to be a reliable rem-
edy, and I give it the praise and re-
commendation that it deserves."-G.

On Wednesday all t O th m
linery stores had tbhir spr
ngs. All of the stores had been beU-
tifully decorated with dognd
other flowers, and with the very man
beautiful and ylhspring ad sum
mer hats and the corwds of ladies
that called during the day made quite
an animated scene in the pretty mil-
linery parlors. Miss Af-
The display windows of Miss Af-
fleck's store were handsomely decor-
ated with artificial violets, purple
ribbon and a lovely hat made entirely
of violets, and were much admired by
many passers-by.
Mesdames Haycraft and DeCamp
had their window filled with many
pretty. summer hats and banks and
strings of daisies, and this was anoth-
er much admired window.
As Mrs. Bostick has no display win-
dows her pretty bats had to be seen
from the inside of the store, which
was indeed arranged in a'lovely man-
ner. One of her most admired hats
was a corn colored straw, trimmed
with foliage, blackberries and old rose
All three of these stores will con-
tinue their openings today and extend
a cordial invitation to all the ladies
to call and see their pretty hats.

Hamp Chambers of the Ocala fire
department has started a small me-
nagerie in his city that far exceeds

owls, one coon, guinea pigs, squirrels,
and a catamount, which has recently
been captured, will be added to the
list within a few days. He is exceed-
ingly proud of his pets and while feed-
ing them the enclosure is usually lin-
ed with strangers seeing their "an-
tics," they having been taught to do
various and sundry tricks for their

visitors and public generally.-Gaines-

is making a specialty of setting the
pace for styles in southern millinery.
She says that when she has her hats
on display and hAs her opening she
thinks that she will be able to con-
vince all of this fact.

Mr. R. L. Martin is up from Lake
Weir. He is i member of the Lake
Weir Sand and Stone Company, and
says that the company is kept bu3y

of it is being used on.the Ocala gov-
ernment building, but still more of it
is being shipped to Peace river, for
one of the big phosphate plants thr.t
is now in course of construction there.

Yesterday afternoon at the Wo-
man's Club rooms Mrs. William
Hocker, the president of organization, entertained the club
members very delightfully in honor
of Mrs. T. M. Shackletord of Talla-
hassee, who is president of the Flor-
ida Federation of Woman's Clubs.
Beautiful sprays of dogwood against
the green walls, and poinsettas, the
club's flower, made the rooms spring-
like and very attractive.
The guests were greeted at the
door by Mrs. J. K. Austin and Mrs.
D. W. Davis.
Receiving with Mrs. Hocker and
Mrs. Shackleford were the officers of
the club: Mrs. Mote, vice president;
Mrs. R. L. Anderson, corresponding
secretary; Mrs. D. M. Smith, treasur-
er, and the chairmen of the various
committees, including Mrs. Carney,
Mrs. Robertson, Mrs. Burford, Miss
Stotesbury, Mrs. Clarence Camp, Mrs.
Maughs and Mrs. Moorhead.
At the punch bowl, prettily decor-
ated with dogwood, Misses Lutie Mote
Hansbrough, Annie Davis, Betty Wray
Mclver and Lillian Thagard served
deilcious orange punch.
The feature of the afternoon was
Mrs. Shackleford's talk on federation
work ,throughout the state. She
spoke of the growth of women's clubs
as an expansion of the home influ-
ence, with particular stress on the
wide range of work and interests ac-
cessible to women through the feder-
ation. The state committees on ed-
ucaJtion, art, forestry, child labor, etc.,
have andi are accomplishing good re-
sults. The circulating libraries in

of which were over-ripe. He told his

The members of Dickison Chapter
U. D. C., aim a number ,'- invited
friends enjoyed a most ..ghtful af-
ternoon Friday with Mrs. Jake Brown
on North Tuscawilla street.
On arriving the guests were wel-
comed by Mrs. Brown and Mrs. R. G.
Blake. On the 'front piazza a cozy
table was arranged, which was pre-
sided over by Mrs. B. W. Mimms ,and
delicious chocolate and whipped
cream, sandwiches and stuffed dates
were served by Miss Florence Wal-
ters. As the guests were served they
were invited into 'the parlor, where
seats were arranged and a musical
and historical program was rendered.
At the annual meeting of the
Daughters in state convention, a res-
olution was adopted to open all meet-
ings by singing the "Suwannee Riv-
er," so all joined in singing this pop-
ular song.
Mrs. E. L. Carney, Mrs. R. G. Blake,
Miss Irma Blake and the chapter's
historian, Miss Florence Walters, all
read interesting reminiscences, and
Mrs. John H. Taylor, Miss Jessilu
Martin and Miss Ethel Haycraft ren-
dered charming instrumental and vo-
cal solos.
Several of the Veterans were in-
vited to be present and make address-
es, but Capt. W. L. Ditto was the only
one who responded to the invitation.
He can always be counted on and may
well bear the sobriquet of "Old Faith-
The program was a most entertain-
ing one and the Daughters are in-
debted to the very capable historian
for planning it.
It was the regret of all that the
aged and honored president of the
chapter, Mrs. Fannie R. Gary, was un-
able to be at the meeting, and when
it was announced.that she had had a

There is a Definite Money Profir in
Its Use-Testimony of Experts
-Dr. Cyril G. Hopkins of the univer-
sity, who has had charge of this
state's soil investigations for more
than six years, had the following to
say about the plant food element phos-
phorus in speaking to farmers in the
various soil experiment fields recently
inspected by the soil advisory com-
mittee of the Illinois farmers' insti-

Phosphorus Returns $5 for $1
The Ohio experiment station has
as an average of 13 crops of corn a
36 cents per bushel, 13 crops of oat
at 25 cents, 12 crops of wheat at 7
cents, 10 crops of clover and 10 crop
of timothy at $6 a ton, on land tha
is richer in phosphorus than our land
but poorer in nitrogen than our land
found that every dollar invested ii
phosphorus paid back $4.76, while
neither nitrogen nor potassium pal
for its cost.
The same station has found as thE
average of 56 tests in eleven years
work that when rock phosphate wa
applied in connection with manur?
every dollar in rock phosphate paid
back $5.68.
On three different series of plot
at the university phosphorus has ('out
ted the yield of clover as an average
of the last three years.
On the Bloomington soil exierimen
field phosphorus increased the yield
of wheat ten bushels per acre in 1905
increased the yield of clover inor
than one ton per acre in 1906, and in
creased the yield of corn following
clover by 19 bushels per acre in 1907
The increase in either crop wonul
practically pay the cost of phosphorus
applied for the three years. In both
the Illinois bone meal, which is more
expensive than phosphate, was used
Rock Phosphate Results in Illinois
Experiments with natural rock phos
phate were started more recently in
Illinois, but have given good result!
on our soils. Four years' experiment!
at the university have resulted in an
average increase of the crop equal to
$7.95, while 250 pounds of phosphorus
applied cost $8, but 210 pounds of it
still remain in the soil for use in fu
ture crops. The results of 1907 alone
are an increase of $11.68 or $3.;68
more than the cost of rock phosphate
while four-fifths of the phosphorus ap
plied still remains in the soil.
The value of the increase from rock
phosphate in six crops grown on the
Galesburg experiment field amounts
to $14.40, or $2.40 more than the cost
of the phosphate applied, while four-
fifths of this phosphate still remains
in the soil.
Plenty of nitrogen can be secured
from the air by growing legumes, the
organic matter of the crops can be
returned to the soil. but the one ele-
ment, phosphorus, must be bought.
One ton of rock phosphorus can be
bought for about $8; the same quanti-
ty of phosphorus in one ton of steam-
ed bone meal costs $25; in two tons
of acid phosphate it costs $20, and in
four tons of complete fertilizer, costs
$80 to $100. One thousand pounds of
the fine ground natural rock pihos-
phate should be applied per acre ev-
ery four or six years, always in con-
nection with farm manure, legume
crops or other green manues.---Chanm-

r.ehsington, D. C., Feb. 26, 1909.
To the Editor Ocala Banner:
Your narked copy of Ocala Banner,
with ~dttorial, "Us Reformers," to
hand. I agree with you in part.
When "reformers" fall by the way-
site, everyone else may be permitted
to lapse from virtue. But all citizens
who hope much for progress in life
should be of good cheer.
That which is imperatively right will
be won at last by mankind.
I write now to correct some misap-
prehension growing out of a Wash-
ington newspaper interview.
It is my habit rarely ever 'to deny
such interviews, because they are
generally correct. Newspaper men
have rarely a motive in misquoting
public men. But the interviewer did
misappreheind my remarks, so far as
any political objects I might have on
my return to Florida. I was discuss-
ing with him my ideas upon further
regulation of interstate railroad rates.
My statement to him was that being
now out of office I would lend whatev-
er influence I might have with the
Florida people to bring about a more
effectual regulation of interstate
I spoke of Mr. Flagler's railroad as
one having litigation with the state
on railway rates. But I gave Mr.
Flagler the credit for constructing
railroads in Florida with his own
money entirely, and without state

And I mentioned railroads in Flor
ida that should receive criticism, and
That the batteries need not be turned
i on Mr. Flagler's railroad. I spoek ol
s the fact that the Louisville and Nash
h ville railroad, or its property in Flor
ida. had received nearly thirty thous
and acres per mile in aid of its build
ing. and was still charging 4 cents
I. r mile passenger fare. That the
SSeaboard Air Line road was capitaliz
s ed at nearly fifty thousand dollars pei
s mile and that it never cost its owners
in my opinion, half that amount, and
was not worth today half of that
s amount. That the Atlantic Coast
Line road had ,two or three years ago
declared a dividend of twenty-five per
cent. and that that was an excessive
Profit ,on carrying the produce of the
I appreciate fully the great work
in railroad construction that Mr. Flag-
1er is doing now in Florida. It is an
enormous benefit to and advertise
; nent for Florida. The people of Flor-
ida should lend Mr. Flagler their en-
couragement and not vex nor harass
him in his work, and I know they will
not do the latter. Certainly I shall
not do it. I feel too deep an interest
in my native state for that.
The interstate commerce commis-
sion is today powerless to prevent
such exactions.
1. Interstate railroads can increase
rates at will. There is no check. The
shipper can complain only after the
rate has gone into effect.
2. Such railroads merely by chang.
ing the clasisfication of freight, can
increase the rate.
3. There is no physical valuation,
or law for the same, of interstaterall-
roads. When lawsuits occur then the
railroads swell and "balloon" the val-
ue of their railway properties
4. Railroads can, at will, issue
bonds and stocks. These they sell,
put the money not on their roads but
in their pockets, and charge the debt
to the producers, consumers and ship-
pers. This is all wrong.
I go out of office March 4th. But I
will not lose my interest in public af-
fairs. The people have honored me
highly for twenty years. I will not
lose my interest in their affairs be-
cause I happen to lose an office.
Office here is rather a dear invest-
ment for me. My expenses in con-
gress for five years past, wife and
self, are at least twelve thousand
dollars a year. For three years my
salary was five thousand dollars a
year. My desire for public life is for
an honorable career. I have been a
"reformer" and hope to continue one
to the end.
For fourteen years as attorney gen-
eral I gave up all private law practice
and lived upon a clerical salary as
the state's highest law officer. When
I came here six years ago it was a
custom, largely unbroken, I believe,
for Unitod States senators and mem-
hers of the house of representatives
to use free railroad passes, free tele-
graph. Pullman and express franks.
I neither accepted nor used them. My
salary and mileage was all that I
thought I was entitled to. It some-
times occurs to me to wonder if it is
worth while as a public man to live

a- 1 live an absolutely correct life?
Will I get any credit for it?"
I shall not change my opinions that
have now become a part of my life,
vis: That public life is a high career,
and that a public man shall so live
his life as not to bring reproach upon
:he htgh office that has been entrusted
to him.

Very truly yours,
M. C., 3rd Dist.



of Florida.


In the Washington Post of Febru-
ary 24th appears the following ac-
count of a dinner given the British

Lamar, congressman from the third
Florida district, and Mrs. Lamar.
"Representative and Mrs. Lamar
entertained at a dinner last evening
at Rauscher's in honor of ithe British
ambassador and Mrs. Bryce. The
other guests were the Cuban minister
and Mme de Quesada, the Chilian

were corsage bouquets of violets for
the women. An orchestra furnished
music during the evening."


The first number of the Coat of
Arms, the new society weekly that
is owned, edited and published by
Miss Sara Freeland of this city, made
its debut yesterday, and has been very
warmly welcomed.
The cover, done by Calvert Smitn,
Sis fascinating, and the beautiful print-
ing and make-up of the whole maga-
zine from cover to cover, is a credit
to the printing department of the In.
dustrial Record. The illustrated head-
ings, that lend muc hto the indispu-
table attraction of the Coat of Arms,
were done by Miss Bessie Porter, who
spent the first part of this year study-
ing at the Art Students' League in
New York City; Miss Grace Campbell,
who took rthe art course at the Uni-
versity of Syracuse; Miss Mary De
Saussure, Miss Fanny Holt, Miss Fan-
ny Blois, recently a student at Coop-
er Institute in New York, and Miss
Annie Cadwaller Coles, a young pro-
fessional. These young ladies are all
Jacksonville society girls. The very
humorous heading for the tourist col-
umns, Ahowing the visitor, whose
very footprints show the dollar mark,
having his leg pulled by a Florida al-
ligator, is the idea of the clever and
very original editor.
The reading matter is bright and
sparkling, especially the write-up of
the Leap Year ball. Altogether, the
Coat of Arms is a charmer.-Jackson-
ville Metropolis.

today, when asked if he would again
be a candidate.
"I have made myself clear on this
subject time and again," he contin-
ued, "and if the people have not sense
enough to understand it, why what's
the use of explaining it over again?"
"I am not an out-and-out candidate,
but if the people of this country and;

make the race again, standing for my i

That the humble railroad tie is a
most important factor in the material
development of the country is a great
truth that is little understood by peo-
ple outside of railroad circles. The
puffing engine that speeds at a rate
of a mile or more a minute over the
country is a slave to the two steel
rails that insure a smooth and safe
road, and these rails in turn depend
on the old-fashioned wooden cross-
tie which holds them in place.
Yankee invention has not yet found
a substitute which has induced the
railroads to give up wood, although
experts say that the day will surely
come when the country's forests will
no longer be called upon to supply
the demand for ties. Up to the pres-
ent time it seems that no other ma-
terial has been found which has the
resiliency of wood and which at the
same time causes less wear and tear
on the rails, fastenings, and roadbed.
The country's railroads during the
last two or three years use 110,000,-
000 to 150,000,000 of sawed and hewn
ties a year. The ideal tie timber is
white oak, which combines the qual-
ities of durability, hardness, strength
and close grain. It is not only excel-
lent for ties, but is widely used in
ship building, for general construc-
tion, in cooperage, in the manufac-
ture of carriages, for agricultural im-
plements, interior finish of houses,
land for furniture. On account of this
wide use, the supply has been greatly
reduced and some of the railroads
have been forced to pay almost pro-
hibitive prices for ties, or to substi-
*tute other and cheaper woods to re-
place the white oak ties rapidly dis-
iappearipg from their lines.
Over 40 per cent. of the ties recent-
ly purchased by tbe railroads of this

Oh, can there be
Amid it any good or gain
To come to me?

I e-nnot think our Father dear

Would keep me bound and fettered
Were it not best.

If all 'this bitter suffering be
My given task.
Then, let me bear it as for Thee,
Nor ever ask

Thee for that other, different part
I would have sought;
Nor blame Thee with my lips or heart
In word or thought.

I dare not question Thy wise love
That seeks my gain;
I dare not ask Thee to remove
Thine angel-pain.

Lest in my blindness I should mar
Thy plan for me,
Should pluck out of my crown a star
Placed there by Thee.

What can I ask; what can I pray
But to be still;
And let Thee have in' me Thy way
And work Thy will!

The tourists who have visited Long
Key since the establishment of the
Fishermen's Camp at that place de-
clare that there is no place on the
east coast, and that means anywhere
else, that offers such attractions to
the tourist. Long Key is now a beau-
tiful spot. The cocoanut grove on
this point has been a most pictur-
esque scene, the trees have been rice-
ly trimmed and the shaggy ones cut.
Professional gardeners have been at
work on other parts of the island and
the results have been truly wonderful.
Hundreds of tourists will visit the
"camp" this year and next season ar-
rangements will be made to take care
of thousands.-Key West Citizen.

A late special from Washington
says that Senator Tillman has offered
a resolution calling upon the postof-
fice committee to pass upon the ar-
missability to the mails of President
Roosevelt's homes' commission re-
port, declares in a statement that the

viciousness of the work staggers him.
He says it is too vile to discuss on
the floor of the senate, and is confi-
dent that it is too obscene to t:rns-
mit through the mails. The report is
bound in book and covers nearly our
hundred pages.
A Story of Vice
It discusses in plain English every
form of vice and immoralTty known of
in the District of Columbia, and some
of its disclosures are as startling as
they are sensational.
The report was sent to the senate
yesterday, and although, hundreds of
copies have been printed ,it is prac-
tically impossible to obtain a copy, so
great has been the demand for them.
Among the many matters discussed
in the homes' commission report, soft
drinks sold at soda fountains are
prominently mentioned, and held up
as harmful to the health of the people.
A hundred or more manufacturers
are designated by name, and their
syrups are mentioned as containing
caffein and other so-called habit-form-
ing drugs.
"The first appearance of prepara-
tions of this type was in the south,"
says the report, "and the demand had
spread to other sections. The great-
est demand is still in the south how-

O, think of the thousands and thous-
ands of men
Who in his employment have won
Position, a home and a competence.
With all the great blessings of life,
Who but for the efforts of this kindly

And. ah, what a work in our Florida
What foresight, what courage andl
His love for his country is manifest
In the millions assigned as our

What is done is done right, the best

A glorious record to tell!

And not for the profit according to

Since he had sufficient for each earth-

Charles P. Buckley. wife murderer,
is now in the convict camps at Ocala,
where he yesterday afternoon com-
nienced serving the life-sentence for
his brutal crime.
The convicted murderer, with five
other prisoners, was taken from the
county jail yesterday morning by Mr. of 'the S. A. Rawls Company,
and Detective James Crawford. This
pair took Buckley, with the other
prisoners, as far as Baldwin. where
the convicted men were delivered to
State Prison Guard Bridges, who was
en route from Pensacola to Ocala
with another set of prisoners.
Blrilges had seven men with him,
and when the -thirteen were put to-
gether nine of the number were life-
time nimn. Buckley appeared perfect-
ly willing to go to the camps and start
serving his sentence of a life-time.
Before leaving the county jail he
informed his jail mates that he did
not expect to serve all of the remain-
ler of his life in the camps, as he ex-
pected to some day secure a pardon.
Buckley will start to work this morn-
ing as a full-fledged convict, he hav-
ing been furnished with the stripes
shortly after his arrival at Ocala yes-
terday afternoon.-Times-Union. Feb.


Mr. J .K. Futch brought to town on
Wednesday one of the largest alliga-
irs we have ever seen, and trussed
up on a two-horse wagon, securely
fastened with, ropes and chains, it
was an object of much interest on
the streets, even in this land where
alligators are no novelty.
The monster saurian measured al-
most eleven feet and weighed 385
pounds. It was unusually large in
girth and looked like it was capable
of swallowing a man. It was captured
a few miles south of town by Mr.
Futch and another man, in a cave
which it had hollowed out. A book
was made with a bar of iron, baited
with meat and thrown back in the
cave, and thus the hook was fastened
in the reptile's jaw. After working
for over an hour it was finally drawn
out, and attached to a wagon by
means of a chain, and then loaded
and brought to town.-Lakeland


Having found that 80 per cent of
the children under her charge were
suffering from defective teeth, mostly
owing to the fact that the toothbrush
was an unknown quantity in their
homes, the head mistress of one of
the London county council schools
has instituted what she calls the
'toothbrush drill."



Editor F. M. Hetberington of the
Lakeland News and president of the
Florida Press Association, gives the
following encouraging editorial men-
tion of the forthcoming meeting of
the Florida State Press Association,
to be held in the city of St. Augus-
"Every newspaper man in the state,
whether he be a member of the or-
ganization or not, is cordially invited
to attend the meeting of the State
Press Association, to be held at St.
Augustine on Tuesday and Wednes-
day, March 30 and 31. We believe the
meeting will be instructive and im-
proving to all, and that the most ac-
complished veteran in the ranks may
be benefited by attending. That a
most pleasant time will be enjoyed
goes without saying, as every hospita-
ble instinct of the good people of the
Ancient City is already alert in an-
ticipation of her visitors."


In a Lincoln dinner address in the
Waldorf Astoria in New York, Book-
er T. Washington paid a beautiful
tribute to Lincoln, Lee and Gordon.
He said: "In paying my tribute to the
great emancipator of my race, [ de-
sire to say a word here and now in
behalf of the element of brave and
true white men of the south who, al-
though they saw in Lincoln's policy
the ruin of all they believed in and
hoped for, have loyally accepted the
results of the civil war and are today
working with a courage few people
in the north can understand to uplift
the negro in the south and complete
the emancipation that Lincoln began.
I am tempted to say that it certainly
required as high a degree of courage
for men of the type of Robert E. Lee
and John B. Gordon to accept the re-
sults of the war in the manner and
spirit which 'they did as that which
Grant and Sherman displayed in fght-
ing the physical battles that saved
the Union."


A Baltimore special says that about
two weeks ago the Merchants' and
Miners' Transportation Co. announced
a new line running from Baltimore,
Philadelphia and New York, to Jack-
sonville, Fla. This has aroused heads
of the Clyde Steamship Co.. and it is
announced that the latter company
is contemplating the establishing of a
regular line between this city and
Jacksonville to meet the competition
of the M.-& M. Co. The latter com-
pany will start in May or June and
have two regular sailings each week
and the Clyde line will probably in-
stitute a similar service.

Riverside, California, under her
new charter, has provided for a park
commission and a tree warden. The
commission has absolute control of
the parks and avenues of the city,
and the warden is an active member.
All ordinances of the city, referring
to the streets and parks, provide
that no one shall plant, trim, or dig
out any shade trees on or along the
streets and avenues of the city with-
out first getting permission from the
board of park commissioners.-Col-
liers' Magazine.


It is astonishing how many new dis-
coveries are made in Florida.
And these discoveries, while, of
course, new to the discoverer, were
known to the fathers and grandfath-
ers of the old-timers.
The editor of this paper actually
discovered America, but it was an
awful long time after thousands of
others had done the same thing.
The latest "discovery" which has
come to our knowledge is that of a
man in Orange county. IHe "discov-
ers" that a peach tree can be grafted
on a plum stock, and forthwith he
takes it for granted that peaches
grafted on plums would knock out
the peach borer.
He is correct. It will knock out
the borer all right, but unfortunately
for his theory, it kocks out the peach-
es also.
Our editor has grafted peaches on
plums, just for the curiosity of. the
thing, but he never obtained any fruit
from trees thus treated.

But, to keep borers out of peach
trees is a very simple matter. Take
some strips of osnahurg. or other
thick cloth, and wrap two or three
times around the tree, tie it on with
strips of the same material and see
that the lower end of the cloth is a

The board of trade meeting Wed-
nesday afternoon was quite largely at-
The purpose of the meeting was to
hear a proposition from Mr. R P
Rentz in the matter of extendita Mb
railroad from Silver Springs to Oate
and from Orange Springs to Palatha.
Mr. Herbert Anderson stated that
Mr. Rentz owned the old right of wap
of the Ocala, Silver Springs and
Western railway, and was in a pot-
tion to build the railroad to O(ala I
the people of Ocala wanted him to do
so, and would give him some sub-
stantial encouragement to that end.
Mr. Rentz, when called upon. sated
that Mr. Anderson had in his state
ment practically cove red the ground.
That he was in possession of larDg
timber interests that would keep the
road running any number of years.
and was in position to extend the toad
to Ocala and Palatka if he could re
ceive the promise of enough I t ines
to justify him in doing so. That at
Palatka he would meet with deep wa-
ter, and while he could not promle
positively he had every reason to be
lieve 'that he could promise a red e
tion in rates.
Major Izlar heartily seconded the
movement, and believed that it prom-
ised the emancipation of our city
from unjust discriminating freight
ri tes. He cited what the people at
Allendale, S. C.. had done by taking
the matter of freight rates in their
own hands, organizing a wagon route
to a navigable stream. The railroads
came to terms, and Allendale to this
day enjoys a cneaper freight rate
than any interior town in South Car-
olina, and perhaps of any town ai the
Mr. Jake Brown echoed Major l&
tar's sentiments, and said that so far
as he was concerned that he woWM
sign any sort of an obligation to s*l
all his freight over the new line. s
he believed it meant lower rate.
Mr. Bittinger, as he always I~. wa
vigorously enthusiastic, and said that
it meant more for Ocala than aay
proposition ever before submitted to
her people for ratification.
Mr. Dozier a-k",d .Mr. Rentz If the
business nw!n of Ocala obligated t
give him all their fr.-liht woill t hehe
in position to hainlle it. and Mr Rents
replied in the affirm:tivE. anId hat It
would pay him to put himself in pa
sition to do so if his pr,-.-ntt rollin
stock was insuflcient.
Mr. Harris stated that it w.nt for
the saying that the people of (Orala
would be heartily in favor of any
movement that pro:nised the tetetr-
ment of freight conditions.
He then stated that a gentilenma
from Daytona was in his oflce tbh
other day and stated that a hard road
was practically completed Jrom Day-
tona to the St. Johns river, and he be-
lieved that if the proper efforts wre
made the government would ronttanu
this work through the I'nited States
"reservation." and t would largely
help to get the road to Ocala.
Mr. Asher Frank said that he hoped
that the board of trade would appro
private a certain sum of money to gat
up a small pamphlet telling of the ad-
vantages, resources and poeMibUltte
of Ocala and Marion county.
Mr. Brumby stated that the based
of county commissioners had apprlnt-
ed a committee for the same psrpea
and that the two committees oeM
act jointly.

No wonder at all that the politics
of the south is based upon prejudice
and passion in the light of the fol-
lowing which we clip from the Ocala

the head of "All About Emerson:"
Emerson called Poe the "jingle

greatest nigger-singer this country
ever produced, and as a popular favor-

I wish to introduce our missionary
to the Methodist people of the Ocala
district. The preachers at the Insti-
tute decided to keep up our district
special this year. and on the recom-
mendatian of Dr. W. R. Lambirth and
Bro. W. G. Pletcher. we take Brother
Riera as our missionary. His salary
is $700. and we are going to pay it
as a free-will offering.
Brother Riera was reared a Roman
Catholic, but God opened up to him
a more excellent way. He was con-
verted in Tampa and attended schools
in Florida for several years. After
the Spanish-American war he return-
ed to Cuba. During Brother Baker's
successful ministry at Matanzas. one
of his most faithful helpers was
Brother Riera. He spent two years
in ,Brotlhr t lakcl r's hhorne. p)trsuing
